Event Description

Introduction to Blindness & Deafblindness
Wednesday, September 12 | 12:00 PM – 1:15 PM | Webinar

Presented by: Marsha Drenth, Program Manager, Center for Independent Living of Central PA

Offered in Partnership with: Center for Independent Living of Central PA

People who are blind or deafblind rely heavily on technology and support services to link them to the sighted world. Not every blind person may use a cane or a guide dog – one size of blindness does not fit all!  This webinar will answer your burning questions about:

  • Blindness and deafblindness.
  • Assistive technology and Support Service Providers (SSPs).
  • Tips and tricks to make your organization accessible.

Can’t attend? Not to worry, all registrants will receive the webinar recording! The series will be closed captioned. Other accommodations may be made by request and must be received at least 2 weeks prior to each session.
